(SORRY … Let's try this thread again. Looks like my first attempt didn't survive the "start new topic" transporter and, whatever did make it through, looked like the non-viable love child of Tango01 and myself yikes!)

IMAGINE … a future/post apocalyptic "People's Republic" somewhere on the North American continent …

Has anyone ever used 15mm infantry figures of the East German "Nationale Volksarmee" (NVA) for that purpose?

If so, got pics? And who makes Late Cold War Era (1980s) East German infantry (or guard) figures in 15mm, by the way?

Thanks,

Dan

Always liked those East German helmets….hadn't given the idea much thought up till now but if I decide to add to the lead mountain then I reckon these Armies Army chaps will fit the bill

TonicNH,

Lol. Yeah, I totally twisted your arm, didn't I?

I'm lstarting to like those Armies Army figures a lot, so I might end up doing the same*. Mighty fine suggestion.

TonicNH,

I can't stop looking at those figures. They look perfect for the part.

Ok, ok ….I've got to paint my Bush Wars minis, got helicopters to build and paint … then there's the 10mm Falklands project languishing, then the 1:600 jets …sure, must be time to buy some 15mm VLA – I like these a lot!

Alan,

Are you going to use those Armies Army figures as East Germans or as something else?

A future P/A N american Peoples Republic would probably look just like Americans. Unless they were invaded by East Germans from the 1950's. If so I'm good with it.
